“fabulous accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

We stayed at the Cavannbah for 2 nights and found it to be extremely comfortable, quiet, an easy walking distance from the town centre and beach and very relaxing. Very attractive boutique accommodation. The owners, Geoff and Stephen were very friendly and personable and made us very welcome. They went out of their way to make us comfortable - even surprising us with freshly made muffins for our morning tea.

Everywhere was spotless and everything we needed was provided. We had a lovely private porch to sit at to have our breakfast- part of the tariff and excellent - lots of variety, plentiful and nicely presented. We would definitely go back.

Thank you Heather for your kind words.
We think we have a very special place in Byron Bay , a lot of guests think our guesthouse is like a small boutique hotel, very private and relaxing.
We enjoy making sure all our guests have a wonderful stay.

Hope you can come back and enjoy some more of our hospitality.

Perfect location, just out of the main town strip and located just across from the beach.
Geoff and Steven have amazing attention to detail, with beautiful rooms, great amenities and delicious breakfasts. They are very kind and helpful - we would definitely stay here again!

We stayed only one night, but wish it could have been longer. We were working our way from Sydney to Brisbane and wanted to see Byron Bay. Very glad we booked out stay here. Located in a very quiet setting a short walk from a gorgeous beach, this is an ideal place to stay. Our room was clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The owners provide a breakfast and it was surprisingly good (my experience is that a "free breakfast" normally isn't all that great). Owners were very affable and helpful in recommending restaurants, things to do, etc. Being from the US (the Syracuse, NY area to be exact), it's probably not very likely we'll be back in Australia anytime soon, but if we do and if we return to Byron Bay, we will definitely book here again.

Room Tip: We were in a ground-level room just inside the front gate. Privacy was not a problem at all. It...

We are planning our next visit to beautiful Cavvanbah Beach House! We were so relieved to discover stylish, immaculate accommodation within walking distance to town and a short stroll to the beach. The rooms are appointed with comfy beds and quality bedlinen and towels.
( Sanctum bath products were a lovely local touch) Our room was well screened from the pool area and we were able to adjust our shutters to take full advantage of the view and sunlight. Ceiling fans give the place a tropical feel. The breakfast is a foodies delight...absolutely delicious! Stephens past life as a chef is apparent! The property is quiet and the private carpark at rear is very convenient.Unfortunately on checkout we noticed that we had a flat tyre. Stephen to the rescue! (with cold bottles of water, freshly baked muffins and lots of support. He even gave my husband fresh towels to reshower after his dirty work!) We were most impressed and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who appreciates a relaxed style with a dash of decadence. XO

This review is about a month overdue, but I would be remiss if I didn't submit a review. This quaint B&B is perfection! Amazing location, spotless rooms and baths, comfortable beds and the most amazing fresh breakfast daily. I'm still dreaming of the warm muffins and the museli that was delivered daily. The owners/hosts are friendly and are happy to help with your needs.
The short walk into town, rather on the street or my preferred method along the beach makes this a perfect choice. Don't hesitate....book the Cavvanbah you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: any of the rooms will make you happy.

We enjoyed a wonderful ,relaxing stay at the beachhouse.
The room was clean,spacious and well appointed
Pool was lovely for a refreshing dip
Just far enough from beach and shops to be quiet but an easy walk to both
Our wonderful fresh breakfasts supplied every morning certainly kept us going all day and the extra freshly baked treats were always much appreciated and tasty!
Steven and Geoff were attentive and available when required
very easy to talk to and full of useful tips on things to do in the area
Highly recommend to anyone looking for an oasis in the busy place that is Byron Bay

Geoff and Steven have the perfect property and are the perfect hosts. The rooms are beautifully appointed, extremely generous in size and meticulously clean. They are very private but not isolated. Geoff and Steven are extremely friendly and welcoming - they leave you be but are on hand to help in any way they can. And the breakfast delivered to your room in the evening is AMAZING - home made muesli and jams to enjoy in your garden when you want. Will be coming back boys - as soon as we can.
